Questions? Please email

8th Grade Families - Please Donate!
We still need your help to raise funds for 8th grade activities, so if you haven't already donated to the 8th grade fund (via PayPal or check montera PTO, suggested donation of $40) please do so soon. We are planning a great end of year, full of activities for the 8th graders and we need each 8th grade family to help.
We also need volunteers to make these activities happen, so looks for the sign up genius in email soon and sign up to help!

With the OUSC budget freeze and cuts, the 8th grade families have to pay for ALL of the costs of the 8th grade activities, including buses to transport the students to the picnic, promotion venue, and so on. Previously we asked each 8th grade family to donate $40 to cover the expenses; however, to date only about a third of the families have done so. If you have not donated yet, please do so ASAP! Any amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated. And of course, no student will be excluded as long as they are eligible to participate. There will, however, be an additional cost for the dinner/dance.

Donations may be made via:

  • Checks: Make your check out to Montera PTO and deliver or mail to: Montera PTO, Montera Middle School, 5555 Ascot Drive, Oakland, CA 94611. PLEASE WRITE "Attn: 8th Grade Activities" on the check or envelope.
